Some history

After I got over the shock of getting accepted to go on this amazing trip I first started to look at the history of the islands. I found it interesting that the British captain whose name was James Cook, that found the islands in 1773 named the group of islands Hervey Islands. It didn’t get the name Cook Islands until the 1820’s when that name came up in a Russian naval chart! Crazy how things happen isn’t it? šŸ™‚
